Math

This week, we...


- Represented teen numbers using our fingers (with a partner of course!)

- Worked on justifying and proving our answers to number problems.

Writer's Workshop

We continue to work on our small moment narratives. This week, we practiced writing large text to show happiness or excitement. We also started narrowing in on which story we would like to publish.

Reader's Workshop

The kindergarteners continue to read their just right books and look books during readers workshop. Kindergarteners practiced looking patterns that change at the end of their books. We also tried to find the BIG IDEA of our stories.

Fundations

We have been practicing tapping out CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) words such as dog, lip, cup, hat, jug, fix, cat, and lot. We will be working with word families soon!

Science

In our Force and Motion Unit, we explored pushes, pulls, and force through two centers.

Mystery Readers are scheduled for Thursdays at 3:00. If this time does not work for you, email me and I can try to work something out!

Winter Weather Reminder

Thank you for sending the kiddos into school with warm jackets, gloves, hats and scarves. It's chilly out there and they need it during outdoor recess. Just a reminder to practice having them zip themselves up when they put their jacket on. Right around this age is when they should be able to do it independently!

SCHOLASTIC

Whether kindergarteners are just looking at the pictures, pointing out letters, or even identifying words, having books for children to look at is ideal to helping them become a beginning reader AND start to have a love for reading!
